Pink Crocheted Bag - PIF Gift #3

I just received word that my Pay-It-Forward Gift #3 arrived safely at its destination, so now I can show you what I made for Jane.

Crocheted Pink Bag with Beads
Anyone who knows Jane, knows that PINK is THE color for her! I have never met Jane personally, and in fact I've never even seen a picture of her, but just from our light correspondence and exchange of comments on each other's websites, I get the feeling that she is a very fun and vibrant person. So I just had to make something equally as fun for her.

This crocheted bag is made with the same crochet cotton used for the dishcloths I was making there for A Really Long Time, with a little added twist...rows of beads thrown in for fun! The bag stands about 15 inches tall, not including the handle which is long enough to throw the bag over your shoulder, or to tie it into a knot to shorten it.

I lined the bag with a soft pink striped lightweight fabric in case Jane wanted to use it to carry projects with her, so needles and small things wouldn't fall through the holes. In a future post, I will share a little tutorial on how to incorporate beads into your crocheting. I'll also show how easy it is to line a bag like this.

Pop over to Jane's website to see the other PINK goodies she received in her package.

Happy Stitching!

  • Jane was thrilled with her pink goodies. Cute bag. I can imagine the beadwork was time consuming.

  • Ok, so I've already apologized to you about my "red-in-the-face" mistake, but I might just have to try this bag so I really can link to you!! The beads just add so much to it! :)

  • If anyone is wondering about the 'two summer dress' that Lauranie mentioned in the above comment, go check out her website. It really is darling. But it didn't come from me. She just mixed me up with someone else...we've all done it!

    Keep an eye out for a little tutorial on including beads in crochet work, then you'll be able to do the beaded bag too!

  • Lost my post to you. Luv that pink bag you made June of last year.My BD month,the 9th. I know it's been awhile but I just found your site. I've missed so much. Did you make that tutorial for it? or wrote a pattern, or at least tell us what stitches you used? I'm glad you do all that needlework. You have me as a new follower. I luv to knit, embroidery, crochet, cross stitch, and a lot longer list And then there's my art, fine and craft. and paper craft, beads, better stop or there'll be no room. karen
